The Governing Board seek to appoint an inspirational, dedicated and exceptional Headteacher to lead our one form entry Primary School in West Essex. Following on from our Ofsted inspection, rated as good, in November 2019 we are looking for an individual with the vision and expertise to support the school on its journey towards Outstanding.
Our new Headteacher will bring a compelling blend of professional ability, focus and ambition for the school. As head of teaching they will lead by example and inspire our passionately committed teachers to be their very best and ensure that a high quality educational experience is available for all pupils. Keeping children safe will be a priority as will be the principles of inclusion.
This is an exciting opportunity for a candidate ready for a new challenge. We offer a warm, caring and inclusive ethos, excellent support from all colleagues and professional development opportunities to enable fulfilment of leadership potential. Our school is situated on the edge of Epping Forest, enjoying a large playing field and views across the countryside. We have a committee run Pre-school onsite and recently acquired two railway carriages which we will be converting into learning spaces.
Our Governing Board is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety, and the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of children and young people; promoting equality of opportunity and community cohesion where the diversity of different backgrounds and circumstances is appreciated and positively valued; the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs. Upshire Primary Foundation School expects all staff, volunteers and other workers to share this commitment. We are an equal opportunities employer and appointment will be subject to satisfactory references, DBS and medical checks.
